Javier Del Hoyo
Like many others, Javier Del Hoyo’s initial experience with Chiropractic came from a traumatic experience. Del Hoyo was involved in a car accident at eight years old when he received care from a chiropractor for the first time. However, the next time he encountered chiropractic care in his late teens, with experience and understanding, he became convinced of the vast benefits it provided.
“When I did my first adjustment, it was so amazing that I was even tingling all over! That’s what this journey is all about … making a difference in the world one patient at a time. But, the best part is that I still get that tingly feeling every time I do an adjustment.”
When looking at Chiropractic through an artist’s lens, you may well see it as an “art” as well. Michael Becker, on his way to becoming a Doctor of Chiropractic, does indeed take that view. An extremely well-spoken individual, Becker possesses a degree in Philosophy obtained from the University of Tampa in Florida, yet is now at Life University walking a very different path. He says that LIFE’s philosophy aligns well with his own personal beliefs, and after he came to the realization that he wanted to serve his fellow man, he came to LIFE to learn a profession that does just that.
Dillon Feierstadt, currently in his twelfth quarter pursuing a Doctor of Chiropractic degree, is also obtaining a Sport Health Science Master’s Degree in the Chiropractic Sport Science track at the same time. He has taken this route since he is most interested in sports and movement and knows that he will eventually be involved professionally in a sports-related career.
Carl Hedrick, a 6th Quarter Doctor of Chiropractic student, takes his education very seriously, yet he also takes the time to be involved in the LIFE community. He is a seven-time new student orientation leader, recently represented LIFE at the World Congress of Chiropractic Students, is founder and president of a University club, is very active in his church and is an avid team sport player.
“When people reach out to you for help, you want to help them in the best way possible and give them the best advantages to thrive,” says JaGerran Knight. Graduating in 2019 with a Doctor of Chiropractic degree, Knight grew up with a father who was very ill with hepatitis A, hepatitis C, liver disease, hernias and diabetes, and at the end of his life, was on 22 different medications.
Dr. Randy Rhino
Dr. Randy Rhino had a poster in his room growing up that said, “What you are is God’s gift to you and what you make of yourself is your gift to God.” A 1983 alumnus of Life University (then called Life College), Rhino has made it his purpose to make a special gift in return and currently serves as Team Chiropractor for all Georgia Tech varsity student athletes.
Dr. Teri Stockwell
As Faculty Clinician at the Center for Health and Optimum Performance (C-HOP), Dr. Teri Stockwell instructs and mentors chiropractic students in their first experience with outpatients – through supervision of their patient care, adjustment delivery, electronic record keeping and many other facets of clinical experience. Stockwell notes that she is also the lead instructor of a technique that she proudly speaks of – Chiropractic Bio-Physics (CBP) – and says that it is the most researched technique in Chiropractic.
